Rejoicing in the Day!

This is the day the LORD has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. 
Ps 118:24 NKJV

Wow, when sickness hits the house, it sure does change things doesn't it?  Routine becomes survival at times.  I have been down for a week now and am just getting back into a routine and getting caught up on some household stuff that just got behind.  Sweat Pea has struggled off and on with cold type symptoms and now Homestead Dad seems to be fighting off something, hopefully not what I had!  Believing for complete healing all around in our household.

I had planned on a nice Valentine's Day posting but it came and went.  Hope everyone had a nice day and some special times too.  Our local church will be hosting an Art of Marriage conference in March and I will be posting about that soon.

It seems we may be getting an early spring.  Our weather here in Southern Illinois has become suddenly warm!  It is such a welcome change to the cold.  Made me realize how I may now be behind on the garden prep and haven't even started any of my seeds yet.  Last year I gave up on starting any early and just went to a local garden shop to get my starters.  I hope to get at least some items started ahead of time, but time is running out!
A friend of mine shared an awesome link recently from a blog that had a post on starting seeds in makeshift greenhouses made out of plastic milk jugs.  It looked very promising and I would like to try it.  Hopefully I can get something accomplished this weekend.  If you are interested, here is a link to the post.

Do you have any neat garden prep ideas to share?

  1. Hi Homestead Mom,
    Great post!

    I got my wintersowing started: Forget-me-nots, Nicotiana Sylvestris, Butterfly weed, Brown-eyed Susans, poppies, and False Indigo. I hope it works.

    I put a brick in the tray to make sure everything stays put in the wind.

  2. I don't do gardens (yet) and don't have much of a green thumb! :( Glad everyone is feeling better! Sickness is no fun! Thanks for linking up to NOBH!

  3. Lynne, I have still not done my winter sowing, maybe this weekend!

    Tracy, hopefully I will be sharing some fun stuff about gardening later that might get you intrigued and maybe hooked! :-)


Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to reading what you have to share. May your day be richly blessed!
